Guys, I have just had my wheels, rolled and repainted. I have the original 1750 GTV standard wheels on my car, it looks like they are a mixture of two brands. CRS ( I think ) and something starting with F. Sorry to be so vague but It is dark and I can't go down to the car to check them at present. Was this another example of ALFA mixing bits and pieces from the parts bin ? Like carbies ?? Does anyone else have this situation ? Is it original ?
Also the car is running Bridgestones at present which are crap, I am switching to Yokahama 539s 195/14s soon as the compound is way softer for such a light car. When we stripped the wheels off I saw that I had inner tubes in the tyres. Now that the wheels are restored I will hopefully get away without them. Does anyone here currently use tubes and are they as big a drawback as I imagine. Even my MGA doesn't use inner tubes.

I may only own two ALFAs now, but the handle stays as I am always chasing another one.
